The 2021 Oregon Legislative Assembly had an unprecedented focus on water issues. Overall, about $538 million was invested in water-related issues, including funding specific water projects, authorizing numerous workgroups, studies and assessments, supporting and enhancing existing programs, and establishing new programs. A subset of this overall investment funded Water Resources Department programs and activities, resulting in 38 new positions and over 40 significant new tasks and responsibilities for the agency to carry out in addition to its existing workload.
In addition to carrying out the new tasks identified in the 2021 regular and special sessions, the Department is focused on recruiting and filling positions that will help carry out existing and new programs responsibilities. The agency tracks project implementation across a portfolio of selected projects and periodically reports progress on this page.
